Machine vision uses cameras, lighting, and computer processors to automatically extract information from digital images in an industrial environment. A camera captures digital images of objects moving along a production line, and analyzes them against defined criteria.
Machine vision has the advantage over human inspectors of being faster, more consistent, and able to work for longer periods of time.
By catching defects early in the production process, waste is reduced. Machine vision can also be used to identify and reject misaligned parts before they can be fed into a machine.
Traceability can be implemented in a machine vision system by adding data collection capabilities. Parts can be tracked by reading 1D and 2D barcodes, or performing OCR to read the text on a label during a process.
Our Machine Vision division develops solutions for various industry areas, including (but not limited to):
- Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
- Optical Character Verification (OCV)
- Pattern Matching
- Bar Code Reading
- Pick & Place
- Laser Profiling
- Multi-camera Stereo
- Photometric Stereo
- Depth From Focus
- Time of Flight
- Robot Vision
This way we provide innovative solutions to aid the optimization of the production cycle via the most advanced technologies.
